Good morning,

Thank you for the inquiry. Currently, the below request is very broad and due to the election we have limit staff time available. If we could get more details on the specific information you are seeking we can provide timeline and possible costs.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Mr. Koebler:

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The Elections Division has been extremely busy with the election, including post-elections processes, and we are short staffed. The Elections Division has completed its search and does not have any responsive records.
